Brothers and Sisters
Our weekend readings are about abuse of power among those who profess to teach or lead others. These roles are especially open to scrutiny because of the power inherent in them. We could extend this idea to anyone in a position of authority, but our focus here is on the faith community. Those in leadership roles in the church are reminded of their responsibility to imitate Christ in all their words and deeds, and we are encouraged to hold them accountable and to pray for them. We are all called to be responsible in one way or another. May we always lead others the way Christ would!
